Do you we put age limits for The President of The United States?
There are many other countries that have age limits for their Presidents. I think we should also have it. A president should be someone young and full of life. Not an old man in his 70's like Donald Trump. And then, an even older man, like Joe Biden, is considering to become President. This is just ridiculous. The President is leading the country, and is making decisions that effect the entire country. The President should be a young man, not an old tired man that doesn't even know what day it is.

That is fine, but as with ALL said changes to the law, Trump would be grand-fathered in for 2020. IF you are so for what you are saying that you do not care if it does to apply to Trump, have at it. IF you are trying to change the rules specifically for Trump, then you are IMMORAL.

Yes, the minimum age to run is 35, and it is instinct for most (especially the older generations) to trust an older candidate when they run for a significantly younger counterpart.

The age minimum of 35 was placed back in

didn't live that long but few even at that age

Ageist alert! You know that ageism is worse than racism!

Without Donald Trump, America would not be experiencing the wonderful peace and prosperity that we all are enjoying. Why put in an artificial rule that would have interfered with that?

I could go along with that if we also put age limits on members of Congress as well. After all, at least a President can only serve for a maximum of 8 years, but Congresspeople can (and often do) serve for decades. That's insane! The Founders never envisioned that politics would become a profession.

70 isn't old. Wait until you're 70 and people the age you are now want to push you out of the way, and see how you feel about it.

What if it shouldn't be a man at all?
There are not levels of citizenship. We are all equal citizens.

Senile men wouldn't make good presidents, but men old enough to relax and think things over, and to be good diplomats and also be peaceful men who take care of the citizens, those would make good presidents. A good president is a calm person who doesn't get everyone nervous and scared. Sometimes it takes age in order to be calm, but not so much age that the president becomes only an impotent figurehead.

Feel free to discuss this idea with your congressperson. If they agree with you then they can propose an amendment to the constitution to change the age requirements.
I don't see it happening in my life time, but now you know the process.
